  6. 6. $200 The German scientist who suggested the theory of continental drift
  7. 7. $200 Who is Alfred Wegener? Scores
  8. 8. $400 Name 2 of the 4 pieces of evidence suggesting the continents used to be joined
  9. 9. $400 What are…? 1-fossil 2-shape of the continents 3-rock/glacial/salt deposits 4-alignment of mountain ranges Scores
  10. 10. $600 The name for the super continent that existed 250 million years ago
  11. 11. $600 What is Pangaea? Scores
  12. 12. $800 The main reason geologists did not believe him was because his theory was lacking this
  13. 13. $800 What is a satisfactory explanation of the force that pushes or pulls the continents? Scores
  14. 14. $1000 This was Wegener’s actual profession (was not a geologist!)
  15. 15. $1000 What is a meterologist? Scores
  16. 16. $200 These underwater formations form the largest mountain chain in the world
  17. 17. $200 What are midocean ridges? Scores
  18. 18. Daily Double
  19. 19. $400 At midocean ridges, lava erupts from the __________ and runs the length of a ridge
  20. 20. $400 What is the rift valley? Scores
  21. 21. $600 The age of the rocks on the ocean floor get progressively ____________ the further away from the mid-ocean ridge.
  22. 22. $600 What is older? Scores
  23. 23. $800 The process of the oceanic plates moving away from the midocean ridges is known as this
  24. 24. $800 What is sea-floor spreading? Scores
  25. 25. $1000 Scientists are able to observe “stripes” in the ocean floor because these minerals freeze in different directions when the polarity of the planet changes.
  26. 26. $1000 What is magnetite or iron? Scores
  27. 27. $200 The process in which crust plunges back into the Earth is called this
  28. 28. $200 What is subduction? Scores
  29. 29. $400 Deep, V-shaped canyons that occur at areas of subduction
  30. 30. $400 What are trenches? Scores
  31. 31. $600 This is why oceanic crust is subducted under continental crust (also why older oceanic crust is subducted under newer crust)
  32. 32. $600 What is that it is more dense? Scores
  33. 33. $800 As crust is subducted, it melts into magma which may rise and eventually form these
  34. 34. $800 What are volcanoes? Scores
  35. 35. $1000 This is the deepest trench in the world
  36. 36. $1000 What is the Marianas trench? Scores
  37. 37. $200 There are these many major lithospheric plates
  38. 38. $200 What is 7? Scores
  39. 39. $400 This is the largest lithospheric plate
  40. 40. $400 What is the Pacific plate? Scores
  41. 41. Daily Double
  42. 42. $600 This method of heat transfer is the driving force behind the plate movement
  43. 43. $600 What are convection currents? Scores
  44. 44. $800 The Hawaiian Islands were formed by this
  45. 45. $800 What is a hot spot? Scores
  46. 46. $1000 This type of activity is found at all plate boundaries
  47. 47. $1000 What is earthquake (seismic) activity? Scores
  48. 48. $200 This is the type of boundary where midocean ridges form
  49. 49. $200 What are divergent boundaries? Scores
  50. 50. $400 The type of boundary formed by a lateral fault (plates grinding past each other in a horizontal direction)
  51. 51. $400 What is a transform boundary? Scores
  52. 52. $600 Los Angeles is found on this plate
  53. 53. $600 What is the Pacific plate? Scores
  54. 54. $800 This explains why a convection current works
  55. 55. $800 What is the deeper hotter mantle material rises (less dense) and then cools, becomes denser, and sinks? This cycle repeats. Scores
  56. 56. $1000 These islands are formed when two oceanic plates collide
  57. 57. $1000 What are island arcs? Scores
  58. 58. $200 Mountains only, no volcanoes, are formed at this type of convergent boundary
  59. 59. $200 What is a collision of two continental plates Scores
  60. 60. $400 This is the only country that has a divergent boundary running down the middle
  61. 61. $400 What is Iceland? Scores
  62. 62. $600 This is why there is no subduction at continental-continental collisions
  63. 63. $600 What is both plates are of very similar density? Scores
  64. 64. $800 The name for the earthquake and volcano zone that encircles the Pacific Ocean
  65. 65. $800 What is the Ring of Fire? Scores
  66. 66. $1000 This mountain chain is believed to have been formed when the North American plate converged with another continental plate during the formation of Pangaea.
  67. 67. $1000 What are the Appalachian Mountains? Scores
  68. 68. Final Jeopardy Scores The category is: Ancient Eruptions Final Jeopardy Question
